Would it not be more cost efficient to install the guide plates under your screw in studs and swap out the rockers rather than redesign your intake valvetrain? I'm assuming this would be easier than the swapping valves and locks and keepers. Are your current pushrods hardened? If so this route would cut back greatly on labor as well. Another thing comes to mind is the center bolt valve covers vs. the sbc style as he non self allinging Are narrower to allow for clearance on the vortec bolt patterin.
